Since we mainly work with the most difficult grape, Pinot noir, it only makes sense that we only submit our wines to the most rigorous of critics. The Wine Advocate “WA” has been a world leader in wine criticism, however it may just be true that Vinous “V” (having incorporated Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar “IWC” into its fold) is now at the peak of critical review. Either way, here’s some scores and they are all Pinot noir unless noted:
